Beach Essentials

We've got a beach trip planned with some college friends in July (!) and I've been slowly getting my beach essentials together. Here are the things I absolutely cannot spend a week at the beach without:

  1. Good books -- Shadow of Night by Deborah Harkness (#2 of the All Souls trilogy, out July 10); $17
  2. A good pair of sunglasses -- particularly my Ray-Ban New Wayfarers; $129
  3. Takeya glass water bottle -- for staying hydrated in the sun; $16
  4. Sun hat -- I love my J.Crew summer straw hat; $35
  5. Lip balm with sunscreen -- Say Yes to Carrots lip butter in Sweet Fig is perfect; $3
  6. Beach towels -- oversized ones are best; $20
  7. Sunscreen -- Blue Lizard is the best there is; $14
  8. Umbrella -- we love our Sport-brellla; $50
